A GLASWEGIAN has branded an Edinburgh chip shop "racist" after it charged him for ketchup while giving away brown sauce.
Tony Winters has complained to Trading Standards after the shop tried to charge him 25p for a sachet of tomato ketchup, claiming it was "racial discrimination".
Mr Winters was with his fiancee and friend when they went to the Gold Sea chippy in Ferry Road. The father of five, originally from Glasgow but who has lived in Edinburgh for 18 years, said it was "morally wrong" for the shop to offer one sauce free while charging for the other. He said he felt "racially persecuted". Link.

This isn't exactly racism but it does show how silly some claims of racism have become.

People that put ketchup on everything are among the most annoying on earth and SHOULD be required to pay more.

Its a small packet of a sauce, eg:
Some parts of the country (especially Edinburgh) it's a mincing walk done by effete males. That puts a whole new light on the Glaswegian's request.

This just in!

Sharpton will be on the Red-eye flight to the chip shop with a notion to right this wrong.

Ps - he will be signing books after the protest.

The comments at the link are fantastic!

Oh what a complete and total Elmer....
Anyway, in the sophisticated chippies of Falkirk, the customer is offered a selection of all three condiments. Though generally only the sauce de broon is on display. I can't be absolutely sure of this as I, in remembrance of my late mother's refusal to allow eating of chips in the street, take them home un-condimented, and add my own. In remembrance of my late father's assurances that the chips and batter, if one is partaking a fish, or other deep fried delectation, supper, go soggy if left in the poke for any length of time. I am now hungry....

Anyone who ever eats chips with some proper gravy will never use ketchup again.

Chips with malt vinegar... ummmm! Don't know what that "brown sauce" is, but I'd sure like to try it! :)
